Announcing launch of Gatekeeper – An Innovative Apartment Security Solution by ApnaComplex
ApnaComplex launches “Gatekeeper” – an android application for Visitor Tracking in Apartment Complexes. This innovative application works in online as well as offline mode to handle situations where internet is an issue at the security gate.
Gatekeeper offers the following functionality:
1. Easy interface that can be operated by security staff (for example, the access to the android app is controlled by PIN number instead of typing complex passwords every time)
2. Ability to record visitor details – automatically pre-populate details of frequent visitors based on the mobile number.
3. Take picture of visitor’s vehicle or visitor
4. Send a verification code to the visitor’s phone number to ensure the phone number is valid
5. Quickly look up residents of the flat the visitor is meeting – this helps in validation – also SMS can be sent to the residents with details of visitors.
6. Generate visitors pass and record exits.
The most important aspect of Gatekeeper is its ability to run stand alone without internet connection and sync up with master database as and when internet connection is made available. Most societies have difficulty in getting internet connection at the security gate for various reasons. While one of the reason is surely cost related to providing an internet connection, the other reason for not enabling internet access to security is a potential misuse of the internet facility.
This is where Gatekeeper’s unique advantage comes in. Gatekeeper can work with out internet connection most of the time. Gatekeeper needs internet connection at the time of installation to populate the client side application with master data as a part of setup. The master data for a given community is picked up from the ApnaComplex server. Once setup, Gatekeeper need not have access to internet. Gatekeeper can store all visitor’s details on the tablet / mobile device – when internet is not available. Once internet is made available (for example, by bringing the tablet in vicinity of the society office’s wifi) Gatekeeper will automatically initiate sync up of all visitors passed to the server.
Yet another instance of true innovation from ApnaComplex.com – be it bringing real-time balance sheet, or having bio-metric devices for staff attendance, or making society software accessible on mobile phones – we continue to raise the bar in this space!
